EUGENE, Oregon, November 13, 2013 ( – The University of Oregon paid homosexual activist and X-rated sex advice columnist Dan Savage $24,000 out of student funds to give a presentation at the launch of a university-sponsored graphic smartphone sex education app, according to a copy of the contract the university released to the local Register-Guard newspaper.

Savage said the smartphone app from the University of Oregon Health Center, called SexPositive, is “an amazing, fun and completely addictive sex ed app.”

The Register-Guard described Savage's presentation at the Ford Alumni Center as “blunt and provocative,” saying many of the students at the question-and-answer session responded to what Savage said with “nervous laughter.” 


What some may call provocative, however, has been described by others as outrageous and beyond the pale.

The university’s campus newspaper, The Daily Emerald, reported, “throughout the lecture, Savage addressed questions of a wide variety of sexual topics including the importance of sexual education, to kinks and fetishes, experimentation and communication as well as same-sex marriage. As he flipped through from card to card, he answered questions dealing with the sexual act of fisting to gorilla suit fetishes.”

Savage has a long history of insulting and malicious rhetoric. The gay rights activist said in 2011 he wished all Republicans were “f—ing dead.”

Last May, he told a group of high school students the Bible is full of “bull—-” and that Christian teenagers were “pansy —ed” for walking out of his talk.

In a video recorded the same month at Illinois' Elmhurst College, Savage told a gathering of 1,300 college students that Pope Benedict XVI was homosexual and that LGBT children are beaten “because of religion.”

Just last week Savage told a panel on an Australian TV show that women should be forced to abort their children for the next 30 years as a part of global population control because “there's too many G-d d—-ed people on the planet.”  

The SexPositive app that Savage praised at his presentation at the University of Oregon is touted by its developers at the school as a source of “judgement-free information about sexually transmitted infections (STIs), safer sex practices, communication tips and healthy advice … available on your smartphone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” 

It includes two wheels with a variety of body parts listed, and provides information about sex practices and STI risks involving those two body parts.
